Customize drive combobox pulldown menu?

Post by *K201902 » 2019-02-18, 23:58 UTC

Hi,
does anyone know of a way to customize what appears on the Drive combobox (that's what TC options call it) pull down menu, pls?
I would like to remove the yellow highlighted stuff (see snapshot: https://mega.nz/#!vJMjhACC!oCrIL_uB9tdZx1_X9ydqGSpMleO4lTMZUG9vqcFtdKI) if it is possible. Heck, I could go w/o the Network Neighborhood icon among drive buttons (see the pic) too :-)

Many thanks in advance for any kind help!

Best :)

From TC help

Code: Select all

ShowExtraDrives=7 Show extra items in the drive dropdown combobox. Sum of:
1: My Computer
2: My documents
4: External devices without drive letter, e.g. Smartphones
So, add the following line under [Configuration] section of your maini INI file (WINCMD.INI by default)

Code: Select all

ShowExtraDrives=0
("7" is the default value)

Thank you very much for your kind reply, *Gral !!!
It works like a charm. I have chosen ShowExtraDrives=4 just in case it may come handy sometime. I actually found this in help file before posting but totally did not realize what it was telling me :?

Thanks to understanding this, I have figured out the other part of my question-how to hide Network Neighborhood from among the Drive Bar: by adding
DriveBarHide=\
to the [Configuration] section of the wincmd.ini file.
Hope mentioning this here helps someone.

Best regards!
